Campus LAN Piracy

As I always thought. If they close of one venue, if their is high enough demand, they'll find away around it. The RIAA and MPAA will never win this arms race.

RIAA MPAA Tackle Campus LAN Piracy
Campus piracy is heating up on LAN networks, and the RIAA and MPAA are
powerless to stop it. In the past, the RIAA and MPAA have threatened,
sued, and litigated their way to victory. Today, they can do little
more than write letters.

Screwing with the wrong guy

I came across this story from digg:MPAA Screwing The Wrong Guy - One Who Won't Be Extorted were this guy (Shawn Hogan), whom I've never heard of before, is not going to talk this and is hoping to take it all the way to trial, and go down in history as one of the cases to take down the MPAA and RIAA for the racketeering & extortion methods of intimidation.

New $10

I've got to say that the new $10 dollar bills look like monopoly money. I used to think that those who said, that at some point there would be 2 us currencies were crazy. But one of their statements was that the green back would only become available abroad and that a red back bills would be for domestic use.

Well after getting one of these new bills it makes you wonder if a two tiered money system isn't far off. I mean, look at the last 10 years as the new money has come into the system they are less and less green and now when I see this I think I'm seeing prop money from the movie Total Recall in which the money on Mars looks like this stuff.

I'm now afraid of what their going to give us for the New $5 $1 bills now.

New word for the Day

The Brights Movement or Bright: is a person whose world view is naturalistic - free of supernatural and mystical elements. A bright's ethics and actions are based on a naturalistic worldview. One of the reason given is to have a more positive word than Atheist or Anti-theologist, much in the same way the Homosexuals hijacked the word gay for themselves, Brights are trying to do the same and in the process redefine themselves.
